The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are used to being treated with respect and reverence everywhere they go, but locals in Bhutan proved they weren’t afraid to poke fun at the royals with a very cheeky song.

The royal couple are in Bhutan as part of their tour of India and stopped by to take part in an archery contest.

It was there they were greeted by a chant from ‘cheerleaders’ who sang: “You’re bald. You’re a baldy. Your nose is really big. We hope your private parts are as big.”

Kate’s jaw fell wide open when she discovered what they singing, before falling into a fit of laughter.

Both she and Prince William took it in good humour and were said to be very amused by the creative lyrics.

The pair then stepped up to the plate to try their hands at archery.

William was heard saying, “you’ll be fine. You should try to shoot up in the air,” to reassure Kate as she took the bow and arrow.

Try as she might, she failed to hit the target but brushed it off, laughing and exclaiming “sorry!”.

The couple had a go at a number of other traditional games too and had fun chatting the locals.

They only have a few more days left on their tour of India, with many people hoping they will stop in Agra to see the Taj Mahal – where the late Princess Diana took her iconic photograph.

What do you think about the local’s song about Prince William? Are you glad to see the young royals embracing their role around the world?

  1. I am undecided, but I do think it was a bit to personal. I am no prude, but…… ???
    The Royal couple took it very well however. I guess they did not have much choice.

  2. For God sake
    A wee chant is the least of his worries
    It’s a good sign by indisns

  3. I think that’s disgusting I’m not a prude but that’s going too far

  4. The Duchess of Cambridge has the maturity to carry her job well unlike princess Diana. Kate is doing a great job looks the part as well and well educated.

  5. I think it’s funny as did William and Kate obviously. Nice that people feel they can be normal around a royal couple and don’t have to be stiff and starchy as they used to!. Guessing that it’s only the royalists that are getting upset at this!

  6. Sounds as though the Bhutan/Indian people have a fetish about hirsute and long private parts. I wonder if they chant the same thing to their monks who are bald and have short noses?

  7. The song – crude and rude, but they handled it well, allowing for the ignorant!

  8. People have different cultures. I guess they meant well. If only we can understand their humour.

  9. Yip. We will never know,true or false, and don,t really want to know. I thought it was big feet, big, well you know what I mean and it was rude. Did they not know what they were singing, God knows.

  10. Who cares ,they are not bothered why should anyone else bother ,as long as they are happy and sense of humour ,leave well alone ,you have to be careful in strange countries.
